Air monitoring equipments for material emissions and product testing

by Gradko International Ltd     based in Winchester, UNITED KINGDOM

A wide variety of products that are used in our indoor environments may emit harmful substances, raising health and safety concerns in homes, offices, public places and vehicles. There is increasing demand to reduce VOC emissions from indoor sources, backed by European legislation. REACH regulation is a European initiative for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances. It was implemented to protect human health and the environment from harmful emissions of chemicals into the air we breathe. The REACH regulation places the responsibility on manufacturers and importers to test their products and provide safety information to the purchaser, end user or consumers.

Opacity monitoring for continuous emissions

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

The history of air pollution regulation dates back as far as the 13th century when in 1273, Edward I (Longshanks) of England prohibited the burning of sea coal in London. The smoke produced by its combustion was considered detrimental to human health. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, regulations were being passed that sought to control air pollution predominantly for smoke and odour control. Traditionally, regulators were concerned with the visual impact of the discharge from a stack or chimney. Therefore, emission limits were expressed in terms of colour or opacity. Modern methods for opacity measurement still use the darkness of the stack gases to measure the amount of smoke or dust emitted within the exhaust gases.

Measurement of hydrogen sulfide & carbon disulfide in air for continous emission monitoring

by MOCON - Baseline     based in Lyons, COLORADO (USA)

The Series 8900 Hydrogen Sulfide and Carbon Disulfide Analyzer provides direct measurement of H2S and CS2 in ambient air. This instrument is utilized for continuous emission monitoring. The Series 8900 H2S and CS2 Analyzer employs a Photoionization detector (PID) as the sensing element. A dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection a fixed volume of sample is carried to the pre-cut column. Backflush is timed so that only the H2S, CS2, and other similar components are eluted to the analytical column. Contaminants on the pre-cut column are backflushed to vent. H2S and CS2 are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

Ambient air and emissions monitoring of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons – airmoC10-C20+

by Chromatotec Group     based in Val de Virvée, FRANCE

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are known to be formed typically during incomplete combustion of organic matter at high temperature. Their major sources in the atmosphere include industrial processes, vehicle exhausts, waste incinerations, and domestic heating emissions. Due to their carcinogenic/mutagenic effects, 16 PAHs are currently listed as priority air pollutants.

CO2 / CO Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) are generally measured to ensure process control. CO2 is the desired product and CO is undesired in combustion since it will explode in high enough concentrations. CO2 and CO concentrations can also be used to determine other process-specific efficiencies. Continuous emissions monitoring equipment that can be calibrated as a CO and CO2 analyzer is thereby essential for process control.

Emissions testing for industrial boilers and burners

by Testo Inc.     based in Sparta, NEW JERSEY (USA)

Industrial boilers and burners have their own unique characteristics. When an unexpectedly high CO is detected, the Testo 350 will automatically adjust to the situation, keeping the sensor protected at all times. Don`t worry about climbing and removing the probe from the stack, just hit the fresh air button. The measurements of O2, CO, NO and SO2, combined with automatic calculations (CO2, efficiency, excess air), provide fast tuning solutions. The 350`s compact design is better for working on a platform or small space. The automatic zero pressure measurement is ideal to monitor flow or draft induction. With a pitot tube you can quickly measure velocity and determine mass flow even during long term testing. The Testo 350 makes reporting in lbs/hour easy!

Gas Detection Solutions for GHG Monitoring

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Most sources of fugitive emissions are from multiple points rather than single point sources. So, open path area or perimeter monitoring provides more meaningful fugitive emissions data than an array of point sensors or a program of grab sampling. Point measurements may underestimate emissions because of missing locations with high gas concentrations, or conversely overestimate because they are located in areas of high concentrations. Grab sampling programs typically check only a small percentage of potential leak locations and extrapolate results to an entire facility. Wide margins of uncertainty are associated with such extrapolations. Open path monitoring provides continuously updated, real-time, integrated emissions across a facility boundary.This provides a complete picture of the fugitive emissions across that boundary,enabling identification of specific operations and times that give rise to higher emissions, and so enabling these emissions to be properly managed and controlled.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for stack testing

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Several EU directives and national laws in European countries set requirements for continuous monitoring of flue gas emissions at power plants. Further requirements are set on the quality assurance of the installed measurement systems at the plants. The relevant standard in this regard is EN 14181:2004, the quality assurance of automated measuring systems. The standard dictates how to determine that the measurement systems installed for continuous emissions monitoring at a plant operate according to the directives and regulations set. Two major parts of this on-going quality assurance cycle are the QAL2 and AST procedures. A test laboratory performs tests on the systems on-site, and determines whether the systems fulfill the set requirements or not.
